Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 November 2017
storied company beginning a major change to embrace e commerce as opposed to retail storefronts and a traditional methodology. Company seems to have a hi degree of integrity towards clients & employees. Definitely will be in a state of flux which will result in a stronger culture & entity. Another company trying to deal with the forces of governments intent on driving business out of canada
Decent place to work if you can avoid the office politics
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2017
Typical day involes managing multiple requests for a board range of products. Improved my time management skills, learned about various applications for products, increased knowledge of the MRO market. Senior management is never seen and seems to be more about self preservation than the overall well being of the business. Owner by Grainger who does not understand the Canadian market place
Une journée chez Acklands Grainger pour ma part consistait à faire du "shipping" c'est-à-dire place les commandes et les expédier aux fournisseurs avec l'aide de mes collègues qui m'aidait s'il y avait un petit problème.
